The first teaser trailer to Darren Lynn Bousman [Director of Saw 2-3-4 and Repo! The Genetic Opera as well as Mother’s Day]’s, who directed and wrote the new film currently being filmed in Barcelona.
Despite the success of Saw, Bousman didn’t come back for it as he wanted to make Repo! The Genetic Opera, that was indeed creative, but no one went to see it.
This doesn’t mean Bousman isn’t a good director. The problem lies more in the movie 11-11-11. We can already expect what it is about, though the trailer makes it clear from the start.
A horror-thriller set on 11:11 on the 11th day of the 11th month and concerning a entity from another world that enters the earthly realm through Heaven’s 11th gate. Of course it is released now because it is 2011, just to complete the set.
It kind of remind me of The Number 23 except with a stronger horror element. The obsession with numbers is an ever present theme here though. The movie will succeed if it doesn’t remind us of The Number 23 and fail if it does.
The number 11 seems the main theme. Even the trailer subliminally emphasize it when we read “from the director of Saw 11, Saw 111, and Saw 1V” where the 1 are all in bold.
Starring are Michael Landes, Todd Bridges and Wendy Glenn.
